Frank Tanana struck out 10 batters as the California Cubs won a heart-stopping
victory over the Atlanta Athletics, 4 to 3.
 
California scored the deciding run in the bottom of the 9th inning.  After two
were out Andy Etchebarren tripled.  Bill Buckner stepped into the batter's
box and he was walked intentionally.  Jerry Remy then singled making
California the winners and sending the 11,621 fans home happy.  California
rapped out 8 hits for the night.  
 
The win was credited to Tanana(9-3) who went the whole way allowing 3 runs.
Dick Ruthven(3-4) was tagged with the loss.  He pitched 8 and 2/3 innings and
surrendered 8 hits and 3 walks.
 
Tanana was pleased with his performance.  He noted, 'I had good zip on my
pitches.  Just as important, my location was right on.  The fans really got
into the game too - that always helps me.  Now, if I can only do that again
in my next outing.'
